Hiya, my name is Jess and I love yarn! My Nana taught me to knit as a youngster in Oregon, and there was no stopping me after I learned the basics. Ginger Twist Studio opened its doors in June 2013, and it is the cutest wee shop! I’m very fortunate to have been able to take something I feel so passionate about, and turn it into a career.  I love being surrounded by rainbows of natural fibres and working with my hands.

For those of you who have had the chance to visit in person, you know just how wee and adorable the shop is. For this reason, the stock in the shop is finely curated…I only stock what I want to knit with and can continue to be incredibly enthusiastic and passionate about everything in the shop. Thanks for all of your support in keeping this wee bricks and mortar in operation!


Hello! I'm Kathleen - and I genuinely don't remember where or when I started knitting back in Australia, but I've always loved using my hands and creating colourful pieces. By trade I'm a machine knitter, specialising in striking colour and surface pattern combinations, but you can find me a few days a week in the colour haven that is Ginger Twist Studio, where I'm so happy to help you with all your colour choosing needs.



Ginger is unfortunately no longer with us, but he was the best cat. xx
